Asiatic lilies (lillium) are blooming in the Sequim Botanical Garden, just north of Carrie Blake Community Park. These hybrid lilies bloom in mid-summer in a variety of color combinations, and are easy to grow in our climate, says representatives of the Sequim Botanical Garden.
They grow from bulbs that do not go dormant. That means the plant will need moisture all year. Since they grow tall, it is best to plant where it is sheltered from the wind, they say.
The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices at the Terrace Garden, located near the bandshell at 350 N. Blake Ave.
